Luke Schenn is solid, but he's the only dependable member of that corps. Flyers finally seem to have a goaltender that's at least TOLERABLE, they really, really, need one or two good two-way d-men now, or no coach will have any success with this team.
Meszaros is (was?) actually good, but he is always injured and somehow gets third pairing minutes when he's healthy (though that's on Lavy).
But yeah that D is a mess. "We need better D, let's bring in stay at home guys!" Problem is that those stay at home guys are always trapped in their own end (Grossmann, Schenn, Gill etc.). "Carle is a giveaway machine, addition by subtraction!" Yeah it isn't because he always had the puck and was the core of your transition game that he had a ton of giveaways?
